A Quickie Update

Not that anything I write is ever quick…but here goes.

We’re attending a CAM-sponsored “mini-Quest” at Camp Koinonia for 3 days.  It began today.  We’re not staying at that camp overnight like most everyone else who is attending and the boys are staying home and doing school under Grandma’s supervision.  That works well for us.  I tend to get a bit of altitude sickness after about 24-36 hours up there at over 8,500 feet.  I prefer to make the bone rattling round-trip drive.  If you ever want to know what it’s like to nearly miss a pothole at 80 mph on a two-lane highway, come visit.  We’ll give it a shot.  (* the potholes are fairly shallow and I think we’re skimming them at these speeds…ha-ha…actually, I don’t think I topped 70 mph today)

We covered some great topics today with marriage and family life and our homes as a base for our lives.  It was very practical and we had the chance to spend some time alone together discussing a lot of issues and areas that need some repairs.  We are human and we sure blow it a lot.  Pray for us that we’ll make some much needed improvements in both our marriage and our family life.  Thanks!

Don’t have time to tell you about a re-connect with a “gringa” who lives here and is married to a Mexican.  No, not Jason and Kristin…another couple.  It could amount to nothing but there’s a chance that she’ll bring her three kids with her to our Sunday morning Bible studies when her husband is away on his work travel (which is quite often).  They don’t know the Lord and this may be a good opportunity.  She has a very liberal religious background.  Not sure how she’ll respond, but that’s God’s area of expertise…not mine.  We’re currently studying Romans 1 and going to be moving toward Romans 3 in the coming few weeks.  This could be a very opportune time for a spiritual challenge in her life.  Her kids would be joining Justin and Dayton and that could be a good opportunity for them to hear the Gospel as well.  At this point, I’d like to see them actually come once.  I have no expectations but am praying.  Pray for Jenny (husband Javier, and the kids, Ivan, Isaac, and Chloe).

OK…gotta run.  Not much sleep lately and need to get moving to that end.  Thanks for your prayers.
